Newmarket were defeated by Boherbue in their latest minor football league game played at Boherbue on Monday evening by 3-6 to 2-3.
Newmarket got off to a terrific start that yielded two goals in the first six minutes. Darren O’Keeffe showed great composure when finishing to the net from close range after four minutes and just two minutes later a neat finish from T.J. Brosnan doubled Newmarket’s lead. Amazingly, the next score of the contest was also a goal. In the tenth minute Boherbue were awarded a penalty which was duly dispatched to the net. Newmarket endeavoured to create numerous good scoring opportunities but were guilty of missing a succession of chances. Darren O’Keeffe was the only player who managed to find the target during this period. At the back Brendan Stack impressed with Alan Forde also to the fore while goalkeeper David Quinlan produced one particularly spectacular save to keep his goal intact. Boherbue added a point to their total which left the half time score 2-1 to 1-1 in Newmarket’s favour.
Boherbue added two points in the first ten minutes of the second half before Darren O’Keeffe helped Newmarket back into a two point advantage. As the game entered the final quarter the issue was finely balanced. T.J. Brosnan kicked a superb long distance point but at this stage Boherbue seized the initiative and finished very strongly. A second goal gave them the lead for the first time with less than ten minutes to play. They sealed the issue with a third goal right at the end to confirm a six point winning margin.
